How is the data obtained? / Where does the data come from?
RateOurCops gets its data from multiple sources, including user submissions, public records, public databases, agency websites, and more. We rely heavily on user contributions to grow our database and keep it up to date. We work hard to curate a database that is accurate, current and unique. Thanks to the efforts of our contributors and staff we are able to provide a one of a kind dataset that contains information never before available on a public database.
Is RateOurCops legal?
Yes. We only post information that complies with local and federal laws concerning agency employee privacy. Reviews/feedback falls under Freedom of Expression. (US Citizens)
Are submissions anonymous?
Yes. We don't require an account to submit reviews or contribute data to the site. User submissions contain no data that could be used to personally identify the submitter.
Can I request to be removed from the database?
No, we do not accept removal or opt-out requests from officers or agencies.
